With this union they raised three amazing children Shane David Benjamin, Kristie Lee Kuhlmann, and Jayden Tyler Kuhlmann. Kathy and Mike loved to country dance; they took 2nd place in Las Vegas at a competition.

Kathy’s greatest achievements were her 3 children, and her 2 grandchildren Julie, and Braxton. Kathy was also extremely passionate about assisting in the organization of parents of murdered children (POMC), as her daughter was taken from her too soon.

A Wife, A Mother, a Grammie too,
This is the legacy we have for you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength; you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a wife, not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you have earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we will eternally keep.
Passionate, Devoted, Loving
Forever in our hearts.
